I think she was a middle-distance runner...
Could be a budding stately hero.
She was a good enough reason for a party...
While she ran a perfect circle.
In Budapest... hot night in Budapest.
We had to cozzy up in the old gymnasium...
She was helping out at the back-stage...
Yes, and her legs went on for ever.
Through a wisp of cotton panty
Hot night in Budapest.
You could cut the heat, peel it back with the wrong side of a knife.
(If not the money).

And stuffed some more warm white wine in
Wearing only T-shirt, pants and skin.
But the boys and me were heading west
And a hot night in Budapest.

(She didn't speak much anyway).
And she poured sweet wine before we played.
Hey, Budapest, cha, cha, cha. Let's watch her now.
I thought I saw her at the late night restaurant.
But she didn't grace our table.
Yes, and her legs went on forever.
Her heart was spinning to the west-lands
That night in Budapest.
